Question about Akai PDP4294 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.
I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty or you purchased an extended warranty or service plan, the repair costs will be covered.
If you're not in warranty you'll have to pay for the repair. The cost would likely be a minimum of $300+ for parts and labor. The circuit boards in these new LCDs are not cheap at all! I've seen repair costs averaging $450 and up for large LCD TVs.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. I hope I've earned a positive rating from you today.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
